Lakeland Scrambling Weekend

Intro

Challengingskills icon

The Lake District contains some of the most beautiful scenery in England. It has hundreds of fells which create a vast terrain of rugged mountains.

Langdale is a real jewel amongst the Lakeland valleys, breathtakingly beautiful and surrounded by mountains. We summit Pavey Ark & Harrison Stickle which allows us an introduction to scrambling with amazing views.

The following day, although shorter, allows us to build on our new skills as we ascend a rock scramble in Yewdale. This provides unrivalled views to Coniston and beyond.

This trip offers a great introduction to the sport of scrambling and is equally suitable for those with no previous scrambling experience or seasoned scramblers.

Course Requirements

To do this trip you need to have a certain level of fitness and a head for heights. This should not be your first mountain outing, previous hill walking experience is required and the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your trip.

The days will be long, approximately 4-7 hours of mountain walking and scrambling. You need to feel comfortable carrying a small day-sack and walking for extended periods and during adverse weather conditions, therefore a few training walks and visits to the gym will undoubtedly add to your overall enjoyment of the trip.

We recommend that you follow a fitness plan in preparation for your challenge, an example of one will be sent to you when you have confirmed your booking.

Although the fitness plan we will send to you has been devised by a fitness professional, this is only provided as a guide and you should seek professional advice before starting your own fitness regime.
